11:52 pm
california is our strategy. that's economic prosperity. and we are focus 0*g dramatically changing the way we produce and consume energy. we know with prop 23 going down in defeat we have a green light for ab32. that means we need real leadership to make it real. we have jerry brown and now we have a lieutenant governor and a member of the ocean protection council that want to continue an aggressive effort toward reestablishing california and leadership positions when it comes to green technology. >> that sounds like you are saying you have won. >> i am hopeful. i know it is still too early. i haven't got a call from my opponent yet. one thing i know is you don't assume anything in life, especially in politics. i am hopeful. >> a lot of people said this is a ceremonial position. you believe it is staying

outside of the margins. >> we always try to play it that way. i try to do that as a county supervisor and a mayor. couldn't do universal healthcare. a lot of things we have done in our city. i look forward to doing that as a member not only of the csu board, but to chair the economic development commission. people forget the lieutenant governor chairs the commission. the biotech, life science, digital media, digital entertainment, agriculture. those are the areas we need a workforce development strategy with a focus. when i made those comments when i was running for govenor, they were tongue and cheek because people were trying to get me out of the governor's race. i actually interned for leo mccarthy. i actually had real practical experience.
11:54 pm
it is a running joke in this state. you don't necessarily know what that role does as far as the informal role. i want to reestablish and reinvent it. >> thank you for talking with us tonight. i want to mention the mayor stayed for a lot of the day and not just politicking, but trying to prepare for the giants victory parade and working out the details, finding orange confetti, as he says, and he hopes he will have something of his own to celebrate as well. carolyn tyler, abc7 news. >> thank you, carolyn. now incumbent governor maldonado cast his vote on the central coast. >> he was appointed in april. he will have to wait until later tonight to find out whether he will keep the job. it is a battle between state attorney general. >> harris is trailing cooley tonight. here is a look at the numbers.
11:55 pm
harris with 44% of the vote to cooley's 48% were -- with 44% of precincts reporting. >> and back to the governor's race, we want to take you back to the fox theater as jerry brown came out to declare victory as the next governor of california. >> you can see the latest results, 52% to meg whitman's 43%. we are approaching what the field poll told us it would be. mark matthews has more. >> twas -- it was just a few minutes after 11:00 jerry brown said he wanted to return greatness to california. 23* we cut to those pictures of jerry brown coming off the stage. i asked his reaction to the numbers. >> i thought it was coming. it looked good. the people have given me a
11:56 pm
vote of trust and confidence. >> have you put together a tran session team? >> have i people who work with me in the attorney general's office. >> what is the first move? >> the first move is to start working on the budget and getting a list of the jobs that need to be filled. >> and with that he walked off into the night. jerry brown is gone and so is my voice. reporting from oakland, mark matthews, abc news. >> thank you very much. >> yes, we in theed that. the intent to legalize marijuana has gone down in defeat. >> they gathered in oakland where they hold classes on cultivating marijuana. you can see 55% to 45% no on the proposition. they blame it on the conservative leaning of voters who part pate in the mid-term

12:04 am
10,000 pounds of orange confetti will fall from the rooftops to greet the athletes who will be riding in antique cars, convertibles and on floats. >> we will have all of the giants and their families up here on the stage. we will congratulate the giants on a great victory. >> 270 people including current and retired giants, former mayors and city leaders will fill the stage in front of city hall. the event at civic center plaza should end about 2:00. >> definitely coming to the parade at 11:00. >> crews aren't the only ones preping for the parade. fans are too, and of course they need the gear. lines for merchandise stretched for blocks. it was a very different scene at this independent stand in the marina. >> more convenient and wasn't going to stand in line for two hours. >> the shirts aren't necessarily official, but they are black, orange and available just in time. tens of thousands of people are expected to pack civic

12:09 am
12:10 am
12:11 am
rubio say. what's the message from these conservative activists that tea party activists to the leadership here in washington? >> i think the message is that republicans are actually on probation. i think it's very clear that the republican party -- that voters didn't vote for the republican party. they voted against the obama agenda. and i'm actually glad to hear john boehner sort of acknowledge that. i think it was very wise and, hopefully, he'll govern that way. but look, i think that some of the really bright spots out there are people like marco rubio and i've said it before but i think ma marco rubio's the perfect candidate in the sense he's a bona fide conservative but he was also the speaker are
12:12 am
of the florida house and i think someone like him and pat toomey have a chance to sort of bridge the gap between the tea party and the establishment. hopefully, they won't be co-opted but i think someone like rubio is a classic example of the possibilities here and i think maybe i don't want to, you know, get too far ahead of myself but look for marco rubio to be a major player and a rising star for years to come. that may be one of the big stories when we look back a couple years from now what 2010 was all about. >> arianna, what do you make of this? >> well, the gop has a choice to make now. do they want to follow what mitch mcconnell said, which is that the highest priority is going to be on to make obama a one-term president or do they want to do what's best to revive the american economy? this is a very stark choice. so far saying no to everything obama wanted to do has served them extremely well, but now, they have a higher responsibility. they're in charge of the house.
12:13 am
>> and let's talk about that one-term president, 2012 election starts well, i guess it already has now. and cokie, let me go to you, how has the map changed for obama and how has what the tea party has done with this election made a difference in the 2012 landscape? >> well, the map, the physical map is certainly changed. we once again see a map that bloox blue on the edges and red all through the rest of it, but that doesn't really address the demographic map and one of the things we did see in this election is that the obama coalition didn't really fall apart. it just didn't show up. so, whereas in 2008, i think 74% of the electorate was white. in this election, according to the exit polls, it was about 78%, it was probably higher than that, because the exits seemed to be tilting a little
12:14 am
democratic, so, i would guess about 80% of the electorate was white and that's not where america is. so, if obama can get his coalition of minorities and young people back to the polls in 2012 and, to some degree, women, then he still has a shot at winning this thing. but the physical map, the geographic map, is certainly very tough. >> and terry, terry, this -- >> matthew, one of the things i think that, to a degree, barack obama's future is not in mitch mcconnell's hands making jobim a one-term president, it is barack obama's hands and i think he has to sit down tonight and tomorrow and decide, am i going the way of ronald reagan and bill clinton where i take a drubbing and learn from it and govern slightly differently or go the way of jimmy cart irwho never learned and became a one-term president. and i think boehner and mcdonnell will have more power in the senate. the determination of whether or not he's a one-term president is
12:15 am
much more on barack obama's shoulders than anybody else. >> and last question to ron brownstein, sarah palin, what kind of a factor she going to be in 2012? is she a winner or loser tonight? >> overall, the record is kind of mixed on the candidates she endorsed, but overall, i think she's a winner because if you looked at the energy that was moving in the republican party, the kind of voters that were moved toward them, the working class white voters that broke overwhelmingly form them, the part of the party she speaks to most powerfully is growing and her constituency as a candidate in 2012 is growing. whether that translates to a general election -- democrats this time, but there's no doubt that the energy that she represents, i think, was part of that driving force for republicans in this election. >> no question about it. ron brownstein and our panel, thanks very much. no question the republican nomination is going to go through that constituency, that tea party constituency, which she has so much influence over. we'll be right back in a moment.

i spoke earlier tonight with a key player on the new republican leadership team under speaker john boehner in the house of representatives. the current republican whip, eric kantor of virginia. here's what he had to say. >> first order of business is in a broad way, to start listening to the people again because that's the message that i think we heard from the voters tonight, that they're tired of washington not listening, tired of the 20 months of policies with promises that have been broken and no results. this election is about getting down to business and getting people back to work. >> you know, a lot of the republicans coming into the house and coming into the senate, they weren't fans of the republican establishment in washington, the republican leadership in washington, like yourself. do you think you're going to have a challenge in the republican leadership corralling the tea party rms on something like, say, razing the debt limit, something that congress
12:21 am
has to do, but many tea party activists say they don't want to see anymore of? >> first things first. terry, we've got to get a hold of this spending that's out of control. i think what you're going to see in a republican-led house is a commitment for regular diet of cutting bills, bills that will be brought to the floor that will actually reduce federal spending. we have proposed and in our blech to america to return discretionary spending back to 2008 levels. that was a time when the sun came up and it set. those are the kinds of steps we need to take to begin to rein in the federal government and demonstrate to the people not only those associated with the tea party movement, but independents, republicans and democrats alike who are expecting washington to start producing results, getting people back to work, and cutting the size of the federal government. >> polls also show congressman, a real skepticism about both
12:22 am
parties. let me ask about the track records. when republicans had control of the white house and the congress, the federal budget went from surplus to gargantuan deficit. so is it fair to ask, why should people trust you guys given the track record of republicans on earmarks and on deficit spending when you had control the last time? >> well, terry, for one, i am one who is advocating continuation of earmark moratorium and i think we ought to impose that moratorium in the 112th congress and i think you'll see a majority of the members that make up the republican conference feel the same way. we've got to change the culture here in washington. we get that this is a second chance for our republican party. they've given us a golden opportunity to be true to those principles that people expect the republican party to be about and that's the constitutionally limited government, that is cutting spending, keeping taxes in check, lowering taxes, the tax burden and focusing on the private sector. >> a second chants for the
